I use my truck to work. Even if you don’t know me you may have seen the pics posted of me tiling, cleaning and doing all the construction tid bits at the dealership. I love the short bed, it holds a ton, is easy to reach for stuff and let’s face it the big stuff you get delivered to the job site anyway, but if you must don’t worry they offer bed extenders for the once in a while you need that little extra. They also offer bed liner, tough bed spray liner, and now even the bed mat that I use. I love that one because my get home bag doesn’t slide all over and since I change vehicles so much its easy to grab my stuff cause it stays put right toward the tailgate. Which brings me to the bed lighting- much better. I usually leave the dealership around six or so and even in summer it’s starting to get dark and those led lights are awesome. You can sit on your tailgate and play workshop for a minute and have no trouble seeing. It’s those little things that sound stupid to most but when you are a tradesman – you know.
While we are on the bed, love love the automatic tailgate button on the key fob coupled with the soft open tailgate, this feature is one of the best. I keep a Ford tonneau cover so I can’t just lift the paint can over into the bed. You are probably a much better worker than me, I get my tools all over and when comes time to pack up Fill my arms with way too much and get to the tailgate and actually get disgusted that I gotta put down the too much I myself picked up. Now instead you hit the button on your key fob and it opens and slowly comes down like it’s out of a Disney film. Tina and the boys love this too because when they take it shopping it’s not heavy and you know if you got little ones they love to help. I ain’t gonna lie the tailgate step I usually forget I have till I’ve already jumped in the bed but it makes it so you can climb up with your right hand full of stuff and that saves time. And let’s face it, if you got to do it over and over on a job, jumping up in the bed isn’t as easy as used to be for me, how about you?
